MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
The Museum of the American Revolution takes visitors on a journey through the dramatic, surprising story of our nation’s founding. Through exhibition galleries, theaters and a distinguished collection of original artifacts, the powerful history of the American Revolution is brought to life. The 118,000 sq ft state-of-the-art building opened its doors in Historic Philadelphia in 2017. With gracious architecture, amazing terrace views and immersive exhibit spaces, the Museum also offers a one-of-a-kind backdrop for special events.
GROUND FLOOR ROTUNDA
The Museum lobby provides an attractive welcome for guests entering the Robert A.M. Stern Rotunda with its vaulted ceiling and stone clad walls and floors; while the Grand Staircase shines as the most distinctive architectural feature of the ground level providing a dramatic pathway from both above and below - whether setting the scene for the guest-of-honor's entrance or leading guests to pre-reception space.
Located on the third floor, Liberty Hall is a beautifully proportioned, handsomely finished, versatile space available for both daytime and evening rental. Envision a formal dinner, scholarly panel discussion, festive reception or more in this naturally lit space offering striking views of Historic Philly from the connecting open-air terrace.
